Jolie sends oldest off to college
Angelina Jolie says she’s “so proud” that her 18-year-old son is leaving home to study biochemistry in South Korea.
The actress was seen in video released several days ago dropping her son Maddox off at Yonsei University in Seoul, and holding back tears.
“I didn’t realize everybody had watched me do it,” she said at the D23 expo in Anaheim, California. “It felt very private when we were there, and just fun. The school is so wonderful and we’re so proud that he’s there. And it’s a great university and I’m just amazed I have a son who’s that smart.”
Jolie is in two upcoming Disney movies: a sequel to “Maleficent” and Marvel Studios’ “Eternals.”
Of joining “Eternals,” Jolie said: “They called me — but I was so happy. I think I just didn’t see myself that way. I thought I was kind of ready to direct and sit home. Now I’m going to be dressing in gold and jumping around.”
“Eternals,” directed by Chloe Zhao and also featuring Salma Hayek, Brian Tyree Henry and Kumail Nanjiani, is set for release next year.
